Earlier this week, Caine Monroy and his cardboard arcade made headlines everywhere.

Watch the gone-viral video here and check out an interview with the nine-year-old boy below.

Now, thanks to filmmaker Nirvan Mullick's short film about the boy's homemade arcade, strangers around the world have committed more than $100,000 toward Monroy's college education. And one supporter, a pinball shop owner, is supplying Monroy with a vintage pinball machine of his choice for the arcade.

Molly at Pins and Needles introduced Monroy to Keith Elwin, pinball champ, before offering the nine-year-old one of her machines.

The boy has yet to decide which machine he'll take home with him.
